Robb Report Home & Style Celebrates the Opening of Bungalow One in Santa Monica, Calif.

    Bungalow One by Michael Berman and Robb Report Home & Style—a new suite at the Fairmont Miramar Hotel and Bungalows in Santa Monica, Calif.—made its debut in late June with a grand-opening party hosted jointly by the hotel, designer, and magazine. The celebration coincided with the launch of Robb Report’s July issue and the July/August issue of Robb Report Home & Style, both of which featured editorial coverage of the new suite. The hotel, located on Santa Monica’s famous Ocean Avenue and across the street from the coastal city’s scenic bluffs, hosted some 120 guests—including representatives from Robb Report, readers of the magazine, and various local dignitaries—who were among the first to tour the 2,500-square-foot suite.

    Berman, the designer of Bungalow One, was in attendance and discussed with the guests the laid-back yet high-end design approach he took in creating the suite. The Los Angeles–based interior designer also gave an insightful speech explaining how the cool palette of gray, charcoal, blues, and whites, along with his restrained selection of coastal-themed accessories, fits in with what he calls “barefoot elegance.”

    A slew of noteworthy furnishings adorn the interiors, including beds from Vispring, Sunbrella and Kravet fabrics, Toto bathroom designs, Samsung electronics, lighting designs from Bevolo and Troy Lighting, Walker Zanger tiles, True Residential refrigerators and wine coolers, Taracea wooden furniture, Lacava bathroom accessories, kitchen and bathroom fixtures from Rohl and Kraus, laminated windows from Glass Apps, carpets by Melrose, artisanal Italian glass by Soli, linens by Scandia, hardware from Baldwin, and furniture and accessories from Stacy Garcia, Resource Furniture, Restoration Hardware, Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams, and Michael Berman’s own Bronze Studio line.
